Owner: rfdesigner
Merc Estate: 2001 Merc W210 E320CDi Estate Elegance
Displacement: 3.2 L
Fuel type: diesel
Transmission: automatic
Curb weight: 3960 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0.31
Frontal area: 25 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: other
Description: It's a big car (by UK standards) but fairly frugal. VERY comfortable, but the autobox does allow the engine to stir the torque converter rather a lot, and being an estate it's rather more brick like than I'd like. Carrying capcity's excellent though.
Build Thread:
Current Mods: So far... Grille block, mudflaps deletion, unnessary weight removal, tyre inflation to 90% of tyrewall.

Planned Mods: Torque converter override
Battery charge based on throttle position/engine speed (heavy charge on deceleration, trickle charge otherwise)
